classroom

11 May 2006

i set my mind free
to wander the halls of this,
prestigious edifice so glorified.
quested through various
corridors and rooms
and questioned the learnings
of your learned men.
set my ears to hear
that which others would not listen to
and thusly bore the fruit
of wonder in wondrous thought.
i set my mind free to fly
but the next quiz came
and shot it down.

summer afternoon

10 May 2006

when the weather is lonely
everything looks orange
and even the soft drizzle
comes too hesitantly,
tasting the still air
before hugging the ground
too closely.

when the weather is lonely
everything is deathly silent.
no swish of narra leaves
or falling of fire tree flowers.
time itself seems to grind
to a painstaking stop

but for the furious setting of the sun.
